Kentucky point guard Ashton Hagans will enter the NBA draft and forego his final two seasons of eligibility. He says the “time is now” to pursue his dream of playing professionally.

The 6-foot-3 Hagans was named Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman and became one of the country’s best point guards this past season. However, his time at Kentucky ended in controversy as he argued with forward Nick Richards and coach John Calipari during a home loss to Tennessee. He didn't travel with the team for its regular-season finale, and then the postseason was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
